NUMBER 2

Vallac - Fake Love

Milan, Italy


Luigi Vallario, aka Vallac is back with his track titled 'Fake Love'. First discovering his love for music at aged 10, having approached various instruments he then went on to definitively chose to be for pursuing his love of electric bass. In 2017 he was invited to join on stage with an Italian artist (Nek) during his tour as DJ, and so started working alongside this talented artist. He decided to pursue his dream as a DJ, creating the persona of Vallac. He started last year by releasing his first 4 EPs. 'Fake Love' Opens with a funky deep house bassline and is then joined by the traditional sounds of house music - packed with piano synths, drum loops, vocal chops, and full female AND male vocals. This track should definitely be used by house DJs across the globe. I think it would do great in the UK club scene. Massive fan! One for your summer playlists and DJs, should get this on their set lists for sure!



 

NUMBER 3

Mishell Ivon - NAMELESS

Munich, Germany


Solo Artist Mishell Ivon specialises in Disco/ Funk/ Boogie Funk and her latest track titled 'NAMELESS' is the ultimate blend of all three! Opening with high reverb vocals which then disappear to make room for the main body of vocals, we instantly got a Doja Cat inspired vibe from this track. Full of funk, soul, heavy basslines, and a variety of backing vocal styles, we loved the energy of this one. Very 80s/90s inspired in nature. Check it out! Get your groove on and if you're planning on going to any roller discos or disco-themed events MAKE SURE THIS IS ON THE SETLIST!



 

NUMBER 4

DJ SKAGE & GIRL IN THE MIRROR - AfterLife

Budapest, Hungary


DJ SKAGE & GIRL IN THE MIRROR have released Hindi mythology-inspired “AfterLife”. Alongside Tushar Sharma's guitar play we can hear Fanni Sütő's lyrics sung by Girl in the mirror. This song is a modern, pop-inspired drum and bass take on a well-known story from Hindi mythology. The song tells the tale of a desperate call from a woman in love and a hopeful message about the afterlife. The tree on the song artwork represents the eternal bonding of Parvati and Shiva. There were many elements in this production that we fell in love with. This is very much a fusion of world music and we're always excited to hear that! - A clever and thoughtful production that embodies many cultural influences from Southern Asia to the west there's something for everyone! NUMBER 4 this week.



 

NUMBER 5

DYCE - John Wayne

San Diego, United States


'John Wayne' is a track by DYCE which gets you in the mood to dance instantly. Inspired by the likes of Malaa, Tchami, Drezo, Bijou and Dr Fresch we hear big energy from the go. Releasing on Omens Records, Diverge Records, House Call Records, Nightenjin this year to name a few, this is an artist who very much knows his direction. Having created the track himself from his bedroom, we're definitely impressed! This track goes in heavy from the go with high-energy vocals accompanied by a heavy distortion of mixed synths and drum programming. There are many twists and turns in this track, wild drops, and vocal distortion. Clever production, catchy lyrics, clever use of vocal chops, and there's so much going on that it never gets repetitive! One of our favorites so far! Definitely check it out and show some love.
